🎟️Ticket transfers🎟️

Ticket transfers must be completed by noon tomorrow (Monday, 7/10/23). If a ticket is not transferred by the transfer date/time, the person whose name is on the ticket must be present at gate in order for the ticket to be used. And having to stop what you’re doing to run to gate suuuuuuuuckkssss.

TICKET TRANSFER RECEIVERS must accept the transfer. The receiver’s name isn’t on the ticket until they accept it. When a ticket is transferred, the receiver gets an email (like the one attached) and must click the link and follow the prompts to accept the ticket. If you can’t find it in your email, try searching burnertickets in your email search. If the ticket doesn’t get transferred it won’t be in the receiver’s name and they’ll have to try to get ahold of the ticket holder and the ticket holder might not be there yet or they might already be at TTATC and have to stop what they are doing to run to gate and that suuuuuuuuckssss.

Hey Everybody!

(and then you reply – HEY EVERYBODY!)

FINALLY, here’s that info post I told you was coming! (IT IS LONG! You’ve been warned!) It’s a bit delayed as there have been a few hang ups (mostly personal – geez), but finally here we are! WOOOHOOOO! A BUNCH of topics are gonna be covered, so try to keep up! Here we go!

*** Time is flying! Are you freaking out yet?? We really aren’t, so you shouldn’t either!

*** Tickets are starting to move around more, and make sure to join the TTATC13 Transfer group if you are looking, or have an extra ticket, vehicle or RV pass to help somebody else! That’s the place to post about those things, NOT to the TTATCers group, cuz we’ll just delete those kinda posts here. Face value only, yo.

*** Ticket/Vehicle/RV pass TRANSFERS END online on Monday,July 10th, at 11:59 pm. After that, to use a ticket in your name for somebody else, you MUST either arrive with them, or meet them at the gate when they arrive.

*** Last I looked, there was ONLY ONE Vehicle Parking Pass (of the 225 we had available) left through Burner Tickets! Hopefully you got one already if you need one, OR you’ll have to find one and have it transferred to you, to be able to have a car at TTATC during the event. Yes, this means our regular parking lots. No you can’t have your car at your camp. And no… you can’t just leave cars on the roads around here, so that’s not an option. Just have that necessary pass in place (in your name) when you arrive- thx! We’ll be placing an actual pass on your dash, noting a bit of requested contact info,just in case we need you for any reason during the event! So make sure you don’t park crappy, so we don’t gotta hunt you down to move your poorly parked car! (That one van wrecked it for like 15 other cars last year! So now here we are) Help us help you, and everybody else! THX!

*** GATE HOURS! (Wed – Sun. July 12 – 15)

Wednesday 2 pm – 8 pm

Thursday 10 am – 10 pm

Friday 10 am – 8 pm (8 – 10 by appointment ONLY!)

Saturday By appointment ONLY, from 10 am – 4 pm

*WHY are gate hours like this?!?? Since we’ve added another day this year, we really aren’t sure when people are going to actually show up, and we’re figuring it out as we go! We won’t be allowing any cars to drive into the grounds after dark, so we’re stopping Wed gate at 8 pm (which actually saves us the need to recruit a total of FIVE 2 hour volunteer shifts = 10 total hours (2 at gate, a gate lead a transport person, plus parking!), and we don’t wanna overkill, if unnecessary, so please play along! Thursday, you’ll be able to drive in yourself until 8 pm, then from 8 – 10 pm we will be using our van to transport you and your stuff (in the dark) to your spot. Friday, same thing as Wed, we will only have volunteers able to check people in until 8 pm, but after that, you could still come until 10, BUT you’ll have to contact us to tell us when you’ll be coming, and we can meet you at gate at your arrival time. In the past, we don’t have many coming late on Friday, so again, we’ll save a bunch of volunteer hours, and just have a gate person and a transport person personally help you out. Same with ALL of Saturday. We’re not going to make a bunch of people just sit there all day for pretty much nothin! This all make sense?? PLEASE PLAY ALONG!

*** IMPORTANT: Anybody attempting to come in during non-gate hours will be ASKED TO LEAVE the event. If we find out later that you “snuck in” at all, you could be asked to leave at that time, and/or you will be banned from attending TTATC the following year, depending on circumstances. Over the past 2 years, a total of 6 people have tested this rule, been caught, and faced the consequences. It’s just not worth it. Just come during our post gate hours! Cool? It’s really not that hard.

Along those same lines, note that there is NO RE-ENTRY to TTATC. Once you leave, you are gone, and can’t come back. We have a long list of reasons for this rule. A couple of people attempted this last year, but were not able to come back then, PLUS were banned for another year! Again – not worth it! Don’t try it.

*** Early Arrival – to come to TTATC prior to regular gate hours (Tuesday, NO EARLIER than 3 pm (don’t get bug bombed!), and ideally before 10 pm), you MUST be on a pre-approved list with a theme camp or art project, OR have an approved early volunteer shift with either DPW or Medical. DO NOT show up if you don’t meet those qualifications. Camps/Project Leads with a specific number of approved early arrival passes will be contacted directly with information (including parking instructions), and you’ll be responsible for passing along this important info to your approved E/A people. Showing up early without an E/A pass will be treated just the same as sneaking in outside of regular posted event gate hours, and that’s not good. Don’t do it yo! Thx!

* Quick note for early arrival camps: if you’re arriving early, don’t go too crazy until you talk to Placement about where to set up, if you don’t know EXACTLY where to be in advance!

*** MAPPY MAP! Yes, there will be one, and it’s almost ready! They will be posted in a few select locations, and you’ll be given a beautiful printed map of the TTATC grounds with camps, art, and a bunch of scheduling notes, etc when you arrive! Make sure you grab one so you know when and where you want to be all weekend!

*** POWER at TTATC – Our event is on primitive land (no power/water/utilities of any kind). We have an incredible power crew that brings in generators so that we are able to provide clean and quiet power to most of our theme camps, and necessary departments and crew. Only those pre-approved will be able to plug into our grid. Those approved will be given a TAG for your plugged in cords, if you don’t have pre-approval, DO NOT plug in… anything found without a tag will be pulled by our power crew, rangers, or other qualified crew.. No questions, no notice, no power for you. If you’re gonna bring your own generator, please make it a quiet one, baffle it (maybe build a box?), and be COOL with your neighbors!

* Also, if you haven’t noted elsewhere, there is NO POTABLE WATER available at TTATC either! Bring all that you need! No soap (or mayo) in the swimmin hole. Be smart – thx!

*** EVENTS! There are MANY fun events planned all weekend! Some of these are Cabin/Temple Burns, a Conclave meeting, our JUNIOR HIGH DANCE Friday night,etc. PLUS… many camps, people, and crews are offering their own events! There’s a running schedule for anybody that wants to add events (I’m not sure when that closes), but Frank is the guy that sets that up, so check out his previous post for that info and how-to instructions! There are a couple of spots welcoming anybody to use their space for events, like Center Camp, and The Cave, so if you need a location, they are available! Hit them up directly to secure a time on their schedule.

* Make sure to check the schedule and attend what you like! If the event isn’t your thing, just don’t go! Events being offered are a GIFT, and should be appreciated! If you don’t find an event or something that YOU specifically want to see at TTATC, that’s when YOU bring that thing! Everybody is welcome to offer whatever they choose, including YOU! Workshops, food events, games, gatherings…. So much cool stuff! Let’s be thankful for and supportive of what’s offered – no complaints. You don’t like it… just don’t go! I mean… we don’t want a PETA protest at Pull My Pork or anything crazy like that. Ugh. Don’t like something, don’t go! I love that we have so many people doing and offering so many creative, interesting,yummy, and talented things! Feel free to BE one of them, and bring something you like to share with anybody that wants whatever you want! It’s so cool how that works!


Picking up a volunteer shift (or two, or five! There’s no limit!) isn’t only the right thing to do (Civic Responsibility is one of the principles!) helps out everybody, and actually can be a really good time! You’ll meet other cool people, help TTATC run smoooothly, and it’s awesome! There’s a sign up form for regular shifts, plus there are a few specialty departments that also need help (not on the regular sign up)! Contact us directly to sign up for MEDICAL, DPW, and PERIMETER (see past and potentially future posts about those specific depts). RANGERS also run their own show/group, if you wanna get involved with that! We’ll be tracking those that sign up for overnight SECURITY shifts (on the regular sign up form), so that we can award you with a directed ticket for next year, as previously noted! So grab those shifts as you are able! Thx!

– A couple of notes about Low Income Tickets:

*When/if you applied and were awarded, you agreed to sign up/complete at least TWO 2 hour volunteer shifts, and we’ll be checking to make sure that is happening asap. If you have not yet signed up, you’ll be getting an email from our Volunteer Coordinator reminding you to sign up for your shifts, so just do it asap, to save all that hassle! THX!

*There was a question about transferring a LI ticket this year, and we haven’t had anybody ask to do that before, so we actually don’t have a policy in place for that right now, but moving forward, since that has now come up, we will be creating one. Since only certain people were SPECIFICALLY awarded the lower priced ticket, it’s not fair for somebody else (that wasn’t awarded) to get that deal without going through the LI app process, so in the future,our policy will be that transferring a LI ticket will require the difference in ticket price to be paid to complete the transfer. You know, most rules/policies are only made as needs arise, and well, now here we are! This year, without that policy, somebody might just get lucky and get that lower priced ticket (as we don’t do any refunds), but that new person should be completing the 2 required volunteer shifts, at minimum, to help earn that ticket.

OMG – this post is SO LONG! Am I done writing now? Ughhhhh….. This is practically a novel and took forever to write. Did you actually READ the whole thing?!?? Did you really?!?? (what kinda fish are ya?) What topics or questions have I missed telling you about?? Probably something… lemme know, but for now, I’m SO DONE!

*Stay tuned for upcoming posts specific to Perimeter, DPW, LNT, and whatever else we think needs an extra note!

Whewwww! Thanks for being cool and playing along with this craziness!

ART GRANT APPLICATIONS are ready! Due Monday, May 15th, 2023 at NOON.This year, through

Due Monday, May 15th, 2023 at NOON.
This year, through ASS (early Art Super Support) tickets, general donations, and TTATC, $4200 is available for art grant funding this year! Yay!
There are a few new rules and requirements for grants this year, check em out on the application. We are just tightening up where this money goes, and making sure it all makes TTATC the best it can be for all of us!
MASSIVE THANKS to Kyla Sessing for jumping in to officially help us manage Art Grants! She’s a killer accountant that comes with an aray of awesome skills, plus plenty of experience dealing with this sorta stuff! She will be our primary grant communicator, and all grant emails will come from her ( We’re lucky to have her!
Can’t wait to see what y’all got for projects this year! The creativity out there is truly astounding.
❤️ Fire Mama

Let’s talk about TICKET STUFF!

***General Ticket Sale:
*Friday, March 17, 2023 at NOON***

The exact ticket link, through Burner Tickets (.com), will be posted to this group and on the website when it is GO TIME!
400 total tickets available.
Costs: General (and Directed) tickets $151. (See low income ticket costs below, must apply)
We’ve completely sold out in literally only about 2 minutes for the past couple of years, so be ON IT.

PARKING PASSES: ALL vehicles that plan to park anywhere on the grounds (including general parking lots) MUST purchase a Vehicle Parking Pass ($20), OR an RV pass ($50). A limited number of these passes will be available, due to limited parking space.

*** NOTE: Having a Vehicle Parking Pass doesn’t mean you get to park AT your camp, cuz basically nobody gets to do that, but every single vehicle needs a pass to park at the TTATC grounds, in any of our parking lots. Get what you need!

Each transaction will be entitled to 2 general tickets and 1 Vehicle Park Pass/1 RV pass. Extra large RVs – contact us, as that placement can be a challenge. You know who you are!

If you don’t get a ticket or a VPP/RV Pass, don’t freak out, and join the TTATC13 ticket exchange group (to be created) which is where things typically get passed around a ton before the actual event, and you could likely find your ticket there.

*** ASS Tickets! (Art Super Support Tickets)
There’s a few still available – NOW!

We have not quite yet sold out of these special advance tickets which massively help fund our Art Grant program! These fancy tickets are $353 and are available NOW, but ONLY until just before general ticket sales on March 17th, which is when this special ticket programs ends. You must fill out the form, then we will email you with exact instructions on how to purchase your ASS ticket. Saves you from having to battle everybody during our general ticket sale, AND will majorly contribute to the sweet ART you will get to see at TTATC this year! These tickets are non-refundable, but will be transferable, if necessary. Jump on board for these while you can!
*NOTE: Round 3 of ASS ticket emails went out yesterday, so check your email for a message from for instructions on how to get yours! (If you already purchased your ASS Ticket, stay tuned for a follow up email specific to VPP/and RV passes for y’all! These will be available directly to you…. just hang on a minute, thx!)

*** Low Income Tickets:
To offset anybody with major issues with our GA ticket price, we will be offering LI (low-income) tickets to those that need them to attend. Low Income tickets will be priced at $75 each. These applications will be reviewed by the C4 team. We are planning to award up to 7 Low Income tickets at a discounted price. IF AWARDED, each recipient will be sent a specific individual link giving them access to purchase one LI ticket, plus you will have access to purchase 1 Vehicle Parking Pass ($20), if needed, along with your ticket. Low Income tickets are non-transferrable. One request per email.

You have until Monday, March 12 at noon to complete the form, and will be notified if awarded by March 12 at midnight!

*** Directed Tickets:
These tickets will be offered (don’t ask, we will offer as we are able!) to appropriate theme camps, art projects, and to a few special offers we have made to specific past Medical and Security volunteers we recruited last year. Stay tuned for emails and messages about those! As much as we would love to offer directed tickets to all returning camps and tons of volunteers, we are simply unable to do that, or there wouldn’t be any tickets left for general attendees!
Directed tickets will need to be purchased during a specific window of time (about 3 days) prior to general ticket sales (so we know exactly what we have left for general purchase), so keep an eye on those details, IF you are offered Directed Tickets.
We will be contacting those that we recruited last year as overnight Security volunteers or Medical volunteers that completed the 8 hours+ required to qualify for a future direct ticket. We will figure this out and contact you directly. Stay tuned for that specific info shortly!

A few extra notes:
NEW art project or theme camps for TTATC13! Got one?!?? Please just HANG ON for now! There will be a form posted to apply, AFTER ticket sales. You must have a ticket to apply. So let’s do that part first. You’ll have some time to figure out your ticket situation. Nobody panic – there’s time.

VOLUNTEER! Our volunteer sign up list will become available once tickets go on sale, with perfect timing for you to sign up for something RIGHT AWAY after you get your ticket! YAY! Volunteering keeps our prices low, lets everybody be involved in creating our fine little city (it’s the burner way), feels good, and it’s FUN! The quicker you sign up, the more likely you are to get what and when you want! Stay tuned for that link when it’s GO TIME! We neeeeed you – thanks!

GRANTS: we are revamping our Grant program this year. There will be changes in what is specifically accepted for reimbursement, as well as what will qualify as an actual receipt. There has been some confusion in the past that has required some extra follow-up, but we are hoping to head that off at the pass this year, and let you know all the info up front, so there won’t be any surprises! Stay tuned for more info about Art Grants!

Temple and Effigy builders! We are in the process of figuring out these pieces of the puzzle! Please contact me (Fire Mama) directly if you have a desire to build and bring a big burnable project! I’ve gotten a few inquiries/messages over the past year about a few projects/ideas, but it’s getting to be GO TIME to put these ideas into solid action! Hit me up!

LEADS – a few new additions to note this year!
Welcome and BIG thanks to: Joshua Nelson – Parking, Kyla Sessing – Grants, and Joe Capaul – Vol Coor Co-Lead. We are super lucky that we don’t typically have very much lead team turnover, and we mostly just create a few new positions along the way, as we continue to grow! So coooooool! We just keep getting better and better.
Let me know if we’ve forgotten any NEED-TO-KNOW general info, and we can comment/edit/add things as necessary… but that seems to be PLENTY of info for now! Whewwww!

Spread the word! Tell your people!
❤ Fire Mama


WED – SUN, July 12 – 16, 2023
See below for ticket types, quantities available, and costs. Yeah, tickets have gone up a little bit, BUT…. we’ve added another day! Plus of course they went up, like EVERYTHING else, including our costs of almost everything! Are you even surprised?!?? You know how it is these days, but we all just keep doing our best.
Here we go!
*** ASS TICKETS! *** Available immediately!
Wut?!? Art Super Support Tickets!
Yep, we are bringing back your ability to purchase early tickets at a price that not only guarantees your ticket NOW, but also supports our Art Grant program in a BIG way!
These tickets are available for $353 each, and will be available ONLY until our General Admission tickets go on sale (on March 17 for the regular rate of $151). In the spirit of TTATC!3, we will be offering up to 13 of these tickets, and requests will be honored in the order that they are received. Last year we got 14 ASS requests, but only 9 followed through and got em, but it was enough to super boost our grant program, which TTATC then matched! To snag one of these super special tickets, click this link, fill out the form, and we’ll be in touch shortly with specific ASS Ticket purchasing instructions from there!
*** Low-Income (LI) Tickets! ***
Once again, we will be giving people the opportunity to apply for a ticket at the reduced rate of $75. A link will become available to apply sometime in March.. In the spirit of TTATC!3, we will be offering up to 13 of these tickets. Stay tuned for more info about all that!
*** Directed Tickets! ***
As usual, we will be offering these very limited special guaranteed tickets (at regular price, taken from the regular pool of 400 tickets), that will be available just prior to our general sale, to our returning theme camp and art project crews in good standing. We will be in touch with y’all with information on how to apply for these particular tickets, if your camp or project has plans to return. Stay tuned for more info about all that!
Friday, March 17, 2022 AT NOON!
ST. PATRICK’S DAY! – awkward, maybe? But easy to remember!
400 tickets will be available for $151 each. Put this sale date and time on your calendar, and make sure to get on it right away when the time comes! Tickets sold out last year REALLY FAST, and we’re kinda expecting that again, so don’t dilly dally when it’s GO TIME. If you don’t get one during the general sale (or prior), don’t panic, as tickets seem to bounce around before the actual event, and it could totally still happen for you! If you wanna be there, you’ll surely find a ticket, somehow, eventually!
RV Passes will be offered again this year, in limited numbers, and along with that…. we will again be offering a limited number of vehicle passes this year! One of the greatest challenges we have at our venue is not enough on-site parking space! We are working with our venue on creating MORE additional/overflow parking behind our RV section. Plus, it’s better for the environment if we carpool more anyways! This is all a continual work in progress as we figure it all out, but stay tuned for more info on all that! It will be fine, and totally work out!
FINALLY: Hopefully this info is helpful and finds you well! We are SOOO EXCITED to get rocking and proceed with our planning! Are you READY?!??? LET’S DO THIS!
